Wands are powerful teachers. In the hands of those who are willing to listen and learn, a wand will help young witches and wizards reach their full potential. This is a delicate process and should not be done lightly, for choosing incorrectly could result in disastrous spells. Some wood and core blends will strengthen a witch or wizard's confidence, wisdom, and courage, while other combinations foster the gift of humility and kindness. Read through the descriptions carefully to help you decide which wood and core will best help you reach your true potential. *See note to parents below.
The time has come to choose a wand. Typically, the wand chooses the wizard, but these are desperate times and exceptions must be made. When you decide which wand you would like, consider the lives, abilities, gifts, and accomplishments of the witches and wizards who have owned these wands.

*NOTE TO PARENTS:If you have a kiddo who needs a boost of confidence, consider using these wands as a means to help them. Your child can use the "magical properties" in their wand to become brave like Harry, wise like Hermione, confident like Ron, comfortable with themselves like Luna, and so on. Pretend play is how children problem solve, and learn about the complexities of their little world, and these beautifully crafted wands are a fun way to help them gain confidence and explore the endless possibilities through creative play.
